They may be fiercely independent and sometimes very aloof, but feline friends remain some of our favorite pets. Did you know that December is National Cat Lover’s Month? We are pretty sure that, like us, you like to spoil your furbaby all year round, but if you need some more inspiration, here are some of the top ways to treat your cat!
Schedule a house call
If you have been a cat owner for a while, you will almost certainly know that most felines HATE traveling. It doesn’t matter if you’ve given your furbaby the most luxurious cat box in the world, it’s never going to be their favorite thing to do. Some felines find the entire prospect not just unpleasant but downright scary. One of the best ways to treat your cat during National Cat Month is to schedule any veterinary visits as house calls. This means that your pampered pussy won’t need to go anywhere and will feel much happier, calmer and more relaxed being examined and treated at home.
Give your cat JointCharge
If you have an older feline friend, it is likely that they are already beginning to suffer from their joints. This is because, as cats get older, their bodies don’t produce as much hyaluronic acid as before. Hyaluronic acid (HA), which is also found in humans as well as animals, helps to keep your pet’s joints suppled and flexible. However, this natural reduction in HA makes your pet more susceptible to degenerative joint disease, osteoarthritis, and other painful diseases. Cats are particularly good masking symptoms of musculoskeletal conditions such as these, making hard to tell if your pet is suffering unnecessarily. Fortunately, JointCharge HA supplements can improve your cat’s mobility by hydrating and lubricating the joints. Give your cat a spring in their step this month by enquiring with our team about JointCharge HA supplements for their diet.
Get your feline friend a grooming session
Cats are very good at grooming themselves, but it is always advisable to schedule a professional grooming session a couple of times each year. This is because there are some elements of grooming – such as coat and claw trimming and bathing, that many pet owners prefer to leave to experienced and skilled professionals. A trip the groomers will leave your cat looking and feeling fantastic.
Make sure your cat’s preventative care is up to date
As dedicated, loving cat owners, we want our pets to live long, healthy and happy lives. One of the best ways we can support this desire is to make sure that our pet’s preventative care is up to date. There are lots of different diseases that can make our pets unwell. Fortunately, vaccines can protect our cats against some of the most serious. Vaccines in pets work in exactly the same way as vaccines in humans, masquerading as the real disease in order to teach your pet’s body how to fight it without actually causing harm. Most vaccines are given on an annual basis, but you should inquire with your vet for a specific vaccination schedule for your pet.
Book a dental check-up
Many cat owners overlook the importance of their feline’s dental health. However, your cat’s teeth are just as crucial as your own. Not only will your furbaby be reliant on them for biting their food, but they are also used as tools to help them capture and key prey or pick up things that they need to move around. Toothache, periodontal disease, and other problems can affect our cats if their teeth aren’t checked regularly, so treat yours to a dental check-up this December, and every December, to protect their long-term oral health.
